Environmental Work with Protection Concept

Phew, that's done! IPA's annual environmental work ...





Help that works



IPA is engaged in transitional and developing countries with
focus on learning and education.

IPA offers help for self-help, e.g. through projects in the fields of food production and water supply as well as the issuance of micro credits.

The unique aspect of the IPA brand is the
integration of youth in the implementation of projects. This gives Swiss students the opportunity to gain formative experiences.

School classes and junior-teams define, plan and execute their projects independently but are supervised by experienced IPA staff.


All projects are inspected by IPA on location, and once completed, are checked over again. This way all donors have the guaranty that their money is being used in exactly the right places and that people are really getting the help they need.

Environmental Work with Protection Concept

assignment in Soazza (a village in the South of Switzerland) always requires some detailed preparation. The Corona pandemic made everything far more complicated. Preliminary clarifications, a protection concept and the purchase of hygienic materials were all part of the extra work that had to be put in.

But it was all worth it: From 9 to 14 August, a group of 18 youngsters was working in Soazza under the guidance of three leaders. The students helped preserve the biodiversity in the region, mowing the slopes and uprooting gorse and bracken. In theface of all protective measures and the hard work, the participants had obviously great fun. They have every reason to be proud of their efforts, which on top generated money for a drinking water well in Cameroon.




It's fun working for the environment
